I was contemplating purchasing this item for several months before Easter. I then saw it on Overstock.com for much less than other on line and in store purchasing. I am very happy with the quality of this product. The size of the hockey sticks are great for my 7 year old grandson. We did purchase plastic pucks. The ball just did not cut it with us. I have to remind my husband that this is just a toy and take it easy on the little guy. MEN!!
I was pleasantly surprised with this product. The sticks are bit small even for my 3 year old but not a big deal. The goals collapse easily and all the equipment can be packed into it's own bag for storage or transport to grandparents house. I wish it came with plastic pucks instead of the balls but that is really my only gripe about the product. It did come with left handed sticks (the stick blade was curved for lefties) but it's not a big deal when you are a little kid.
The design hasn't changed in years. That's good in the sense that they are solidly built and can take a lot of abuse. They fit my 9 year old pretty well, and should last him until he graduates to the 27" version. But the design could use some updating with the straps. They work well, but not easy for kids to get on and off -- and my kids are impatient. I would have thought that Mylec would have gone to velcro by now. The good thing is that there are only three straps on the 22" version, vs five on the 27" version.
